A couple of months ago, I announced the ggplot2-extensions website which tracks and lists extensions built on top of the popular R visualization package ggplot2.

Now, I wanted to make it even easier for R users to filter and search for these extensions and so I have added a Gallery page. You can now search packages based on a filter like: if it’s on CRAN; or if  it’s for a particular task e.g. time series, networks, tech, etc.


It’s now easier for R developers to add their extensions to this Gallery. Submit a pull request by following these simple instructions:

  1. Fork the gallery repository on Github.

  2. Create a png thumbnail of an interesting plot from your extension that will look good on a retina screen at 350×300 pixels and put this file in the images directory of the gallery repository.

  3. Add an entry for your extension in the _config.yml file of the repository with the meta data for your extension.

  4. Push your changes and create a pull request.
